Horizon Lines Wins RRF Contract

September 7, 2005

The U.S. Department of Transportation Maritime Administration (MarAd) announced Horizon Lines, LLC has been awarded a contract for ship management services for two of its Ready Reserve Force vessels. The Ready Reserve program operates cargo vessels to help supply U.S. military forces deployed in a combat theater. The Ocean Transportation Services (OTS) group of Horizon Lines operates the company's 16 commercial cargo container ships serving markets between the U.S. mainland and Alaska, Hawaii, Guam and Puerto Rico. Additionally, the OTS group provides ship management services to seven Oceanographic (T-AGS) vessels for the U.S. Military Sealift Command. The four-year base period contract with MarAd has associated revenue of $4.9 million for its initial term and includes two three-year extension options that would be awarded based on the company's performance. "This Ready Reserve Force program selection further broadens our relationship with the U.S. government and its transportation services agencies," said Charles G. Raymond, President, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Horizon Lines. "It is a validation of our core competencies and signals the government's trust in our ability to deliver on mission-critical operations."
